Pros

Pulseway has THE best mobile RMM available, combined with their other services and add-on it makes for on of the best or the best MSP tools out there.
The scripting tools help me accomplish tasks effortlessly for tasks that are not built in to the system, which is rare. It is also a very versatile/customizable tool for monitoring and notifications.
Good monitoring tools and automation of tasks, good combination of features overall. Especially like having the PSA integration.

Pros

Very good, I could setup the software very easy and fast. The guys working on the software are very interested on bringing it forward, something that I like.
Very fair pricing and simple to set up. The real-time updates in the GUI are impressive and there looks to be some rapid and useful development underway.
It has been really good, they are very attentive and want to help, the product is constantly improving and it just keeps getting better.

Cons

Difficult to uninstall sometimes. I am having trouble uninstalling from one particular PC.
The file transfer for remote control sessions is horrible. You can't sort or manage files, you can't type a directory path, you can't send directories.
I do miss grouping capabilities when working with antivirus menu.

Cons

They are executed on your source machine. Not sure how to get around this, but this was the only negative.
The Remote Desktop feature is missing the option for file transfers and chat but both are on the roadmap for future updates. The agent is currently only available for Windows.
A few functionalities are missing, such as sending files via remote desktop, or updating programs installed with exe, not MSI, but as far as I know they plan to add these functionalities.
